Experience the Annual Chicago Turkish Festival

Wednesday, August 27, 2014 HALFSTACK MAGAZINE

Ah, fall is steadily drawing closer Chicagoans. Although it is sad to say goodbye to summer, I personally enjoy the cooler days of fall. It makes outdoor markets and events not as harsh. Chicago has so many opportunities to get out and enjoy the city coming up this September. One event in particular I am excited about is the Turkish Festival. Chicago is such a diverse city, I love all of our local neighborhoods and all the different people we can experience in each.

The Turkish Festival will be one way to celebrate the diversity in our city this fall. You can indulge in Turkish flavors for two days in the heart of the city. Chicago will, once again, go Turkish for two days on September 5-6 at Pioneer Court for the 12th Annual Chicago Turkish Festival. Following the gala dinner on the night of Thursday, September 4, the festivities will kick off at Pioneer Court (Michigan Ave. and Chicago River Bridge) with tents including, calligraphy, ceramics, gift tents, crystal, information, books, clothing, restaurants/caf├ęs and many more.

From the world-famous Kahramanmaras ice cream and fresh flavors from local Turkish restaurants to Turkish beer garden by Efes and Turkish wine, the festival promises a journey through Turkey without ever leaving downtown Chicago. It is going to be a great time for all that head out. The Gala tickets for Thursdays private event can be purchased HERE. The Festival is free and open to the public Sept. 5-6 at Pioneer park.
